Using Navigation Aids

When you create a site, the Top Links bar and Quick Launch bar appear by default. The Top Link bar inherits links from the parent site, if available, so it’s required. The Quick Launch bar is not, so you have the option to show or hide it. In addition to the standard navigation aids, you also have the option to use Tree view, which provides a hierarchical content-based view of your site. Tree view works like the Folders list in File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac). Tree view appears under the Quick Launch bar on the left side of the site. You can show or hide the Quick Launch bar and Tree view in Site Settings.

Show or Hide Quick Launch or Tree View

Use Tree View to Access Site Content

  • yellow_01.jpg In your web browser, open your SharePoint site.
  • yellow_02.jpg Navigate to the site with the Tree view you want to view.
  • yellow_03.jpg In Tree view (under the Quick Launch bar), click the Expand icon (White arrow) or Collapse icon (Black arrow) to show or hide an element or folder.

    TROUBLE? If Tree view is not available, you need to enable it for the site. See the previous page.
